President Trump Impeachment Inquiry Strikes Reaction In Sussex County
SUSSEX COUNTY, Del.- President Trump's impeachment hearing was the first one in over 20 years. The public had the chance to hear the evidence for themselves on Wednesday morning. People in Sussex County had many different reactions on the inquiry.
Democrats on Capitol Hill are investigating whether President Trump betrayed his oath of office. The witnesses that testified on Wednesday was first Bill Taylor, the Trump administration's top diplomat in Ukraine. The second witness was George Kent, the deputy assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs.
Cathy Conner's says she has been hoping for an impeachment for a long time.
"Every morning since he's been elected I have woken up with hopes of seeing something on television, that he would either become impeached or quit," explains Conner's.
Some people in Sussex County say they hope the Senate will impeach President Trump. While other people say the impeachment process is too extreme.
"I think because of his personality there are a lot of people that just want him out of office. However, that's not a good reason to get rid of a president. I think you need to look at the job he is doing," says Shawn Joseph.
Democrats are looking into Mr. Trump's relationship with the Ukrainian president. They say President Trump placed his personal interests above national security. Ingrid Miller says she will wait until after the hearing to pick a side. Miller says she is trusting the process.
"The impeachment inquiry is a valued democratic process. I think it should be respected and it should fully play out. Personally, I think we should reserve judgment until we heard all the wiriness's speak and give their testimony," explains Miller.
President Trump is the fourth United States President to face an impeachment hearing.
The next impeachment hearing will be held this Friday at 10 a.m.
